Results for some of the states that participated in Common Core-aligned testing for the first time this spring are out, with overall scores higher than expected, though still below what many parents may be accustomed to seeing.
Officials with the New Jersey Department of Education announced Wednesday that committees would be formed to look into changes to the Common Core. On Thursday, the chairman of the Assembly Education Committee criticized the move and said the state was addressing the wrong issue.
Officials at a state Board of Education meeting made it clear Wednesday that committees would be formed solely to review the Common Core's two education standards, and that New Jersey parents waiting for changes should not expect them before the start of the 2016-2017 school year.
Students in 11 states and the District of Columbia will spend less time next year taking tests based on the Common Core standards, a decision made in response to widespread opposition to testing requirements.
New Jersey does not have a statewide regulation for how to handle students who opt out of taking standardized tests like the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exam. The chairman of the Assembly Education Committee said that is unacceptable.
